There are only two sports that matter.
Rugby and Cricket

All others are time fillers.

What will be nice is that in the next Cricket World Cup there will be a team from the US of A.

Strange but true, Cricket is actually quite popular in the States right now. Not huge by any standards but popular enough for teams to be considering Tests out there.

This.

We went to our local to watch the last couple of hours but they were showing the bloody football, once they refused to change the channel we took our business elsewhere.

10-15 of us, precisely 1 person watching the football - like Chelsea vs Fulham in an early season fixture is REALLY more important than England potentially winning the ashes? Evil or Very MadEvil or Very MadEvil or Very MadEvil or Very MadEvil or Very MadEvil or Very Mad

Its all good. Not as satisfying as 2005 as that was against a very good team (this years Aus team were pretty cak) and the first victory in a while.

Also haha Australia, we whomp you in Olympics now we regain the ashes.

Normally I don't mind that much, but Australians are such outrageously bad losers that it's always a laugh when we (rarely) beat them in something.

It's good to put the penal colony back in it's place and show them who's still their daddy every now again, can't be having them going above their station in life

England are ranked 5th right and Australia 3rd , so we get excited about winning a competition (that only 2 teams compete in) and said teams are not even the best at the sport ?

Fail much ?

Another fantastic Ashes series in England - thank you Stuart Broad for that spell of bowling. How the hell we could even show our faces after Headingley....

Shout out to 'Freddie' Flintoff - always entertaining on and off the pitch, highlights for me were obviously the bowling in the 2005 Ashes series and for batting, him and Thorpe smacking it about in that great test in Christchurch Very Happy

It's not really the fact that The Ashes are played between two nations.

It's the history behind it. There would not be an Ashes Test in the fixture if it wasn't for the Ozzies being themselves and burning the wicket to sign the death of English cricket back oh so many years ago.

It's not the team it's the history behind it. Every year it gets heavier and heavier. One day maybe - when people forget, it'll take on a different meaning but for now an English victory even on home soil is a victory.

ah yes, you like the peasants' version:

Run - stop - run - stop - run - stop - run - stop - give the ball to the other team so they can have a go for a bit - run - stop....

As opposed to a pile of bodies with the ball either buried or in the air from kicking (anyone would think they were playing football from all that kicking)

Yeah, it's because it is actually Rugby Football, hence why all the teams are called RFC (Rugby Football Club) and don't attempt to imitate American crap with cheer leading, and crappy names, I'm looking at you Leeds and Bradford.
